Given an array of integers, consider the elements as the height of the building, find the number of buildings that can be seen from the right side.

Examples: 

Input : height[] = {2, 6, 2, 4, 0, 1}
Output : 3
we can see only 3 building i.e with height 1, 4 and 6.

Input : height[] = {4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5}
Output : 2

This problem seems to be finding longest increasing sub sequence from right but actually it is not.We have to just increase the count if we encounter any building with greater height found so far. 

Below is the implementation of the above approach. 

C++




// CPP program to find number of elements
// that can be seen from right side.
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int numberOfElements(int height[], int n)
{
    int max_so_far = 0;
    int count = 0;
 
    for (int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
        if (height[i] > max_so_far) {
            max_so_far = height[i];
            count++;
        }
    }
    return count;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 6;
    int height[] = { 4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5 };
    cout << numberOfElements(height, n);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to find number of elements
// that can be seen from right side.
import java.util.*;
class Solution
{
  
static int numberOfElements(int height[], int n)
{
    int max_so_far = 0;
    int coun = 0;
  
    for (int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
        if (height[i] > max_so_far) {
            max_so_far = height[i];
            coun++;
        }
    }
    return coun;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String args[])
{
    int n = 6;
    int height[] = { 4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5 };
    System.out.println( numberOfElements(height, n));
   
}
 
}

def numberOfElements(height, n):
     
    max_so_far = 0
    coun = 0
     
    for i in range(n-1,-1,-1):
        if height[i] > max_so_far:
            max_so_far = height[i]
            coun = coun + 1
    return coun
 
#Driver code
if __name__=='__main__':
    n = 6
    height = [4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5]
    print(numberOfElements(height, n))

        for (let i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--)
